In partnership with Quartz Insights, Brightline™ Initiative announces the release of research report “Learning From Crisis Mode – Implications for Better Strategy Implementation”. The report aimed to discern implications of crisis on better strategy implementation, and participants spanned the globe, with the majority holding C-suite positions (52%) and coming from companies with annual global revenues of $1 billion or more (65%).

The report shows that a crisis can have a positive and lasting impact on three key areas of strategy implementation: prioritization of initiatives, speed in decision making and execution of process, and team empowerment.
Key findings include the following:
Ricardo Vargas, Executive Director, Brightline Initiative, observed that “A crisis can bring out the best in your staff, unearth improvements in processes, and reveal new business opportunities, all of which can — and should — influence post-crisis strategy design and implementation.”
“We were delighted to partner with The Brightline Initiative. We share a common obsession on ensuring that breakthrough ideas are realized, and — together — engaged hundreds of individuals to produce a report grounded in rigor, and oriented towards empowering organizations to benefit from disruption and transformation.” – Ernesto Henriquez, Director, Insights & Brand Strategy, Quartz
The report is the result of 18 qualitative interviews and 1,258 quantitative interviews with executives from the government, non-profit and the private sector who have experienced a crisis.
